In the market for a shiny, red fire-fighting brush truck – low miles, reasonably priced? If so, Box Elder County has just the deal for you! In fact, the county has nine brush trucks up for bid posted on their website at http://www.publicsurplus.com/sms/boxeldercounty.ut/list/current?orgid=14771 But hurry, this auction ends Aug. 14.
Fire marshal Corey Barton said the trucks are all surplus vehicles in his department’s fleet of about 70 fire fighting engines and trucks, and most have been out of service for more than a year.
“My goal was to clean up and get some of them gone,” Barton said. Money from the sale of the spare trucks will then go back into the county’s general fund.
